In the Quran, are stated eight angels that carry the Throne of Allah (illustrative of Ezekial's Vision) called the Hamalat al-'Arsh, although the names of the angels aren't explicitly given. It is easy enough to find groupings of 4, 7 or 10 angels that already have a strong foundation of hierarchy, but I have yet to find a list of just 8 angels. Without simply choosing at random given some of the qualities of the angels explained, what is the best way to come up with a list of names for the eight angels?

Aside from being Islamic/Judeo-Christian specific, would there perhaps be a suitable method of coming up with my own set of eight name, maybe even utalizing the enochian system. If so how might I go about doing so?

This subject does not appear to be related to Theema or Aleister. Also, it is not an "occult" or "angelic" site. While some may empathize with your plight, it doesn't seem to fit in with Perhaps I am mistaken?

Muslim tradition says that there are four different Hamalat al-Arsh angels. One looks like a human being, one looks like a bull, one looks like an eagle, and one looks like a lion. Each of those four angels represents a different quality of God that they reflect: providence, benevolence, mercy, and justice.

In chapter 69, (Al-Haqqah), verses 13 through 18, the Qur'an describes how the Hamalat al-Arsh will join four other angels to carry God's throne on Judgment Day, when the dead are resurrected and God judges the souls of each human being according to his or her deeds on Earth. These angels who are close to God may help him either reward or punish people according to what they deserve.

The passage reads: "So when the trumpet is blown with a single blast, and the Earth and the mountains are borne away and crushed with one crash -- on that day the Event will come to pass, and heaven will be cleft asunder; so that day it will be frail, and the angels will be on its sides. And above them eight will bear that day Allah's throne of power. On that day you will be exposed to view -- no secret of yours will remain hidden."

Hope that is of some help, but yes I fail to see the Aleister Crowley link.
